WHAT TO POP FOR POPS

A SPARLKING GOOD TIME ON NANTUCKET Mid-August is fast approaching and while some people are packing their bags to head back to school, others are reveling in the beautiful summer beach days that make Nantucket what it is. What better way to embrace this feeling than with music, dancing and fireworks at one of Nantucket’s best beaches. ‘Pops on Nantucket’ is an annual fundraiser, and the largest of its kind, to benefit the Nantucket Cottage Hospital. The funds generated during the event stay on Nantucket and help to sustain the hospital’s year-round commitment to the health and wellbeing of the island community. Well, I’ll drink to that! Here is a quick list of sparkling options to help you celebrate and boogie the night away at this frolicking, fun beachside event. ARRIVE WITH LAMBERTI PROSECCO DOC The house of Lamberti is located on the shores of Lake Garda in Northeast Italy’s Veneto region. The winery is named after one of the...Read More >

BONUS Wine Fest Excursions to Explore

BONUS WINE FEST EXCURSIONS TO EXPLORE With so many activities to choose from during Nantucket Wine Fest weekend, it is sometimes hard to narrow down your choices as to what events to attend. Pre-planning your weekend to best allocate your time is wise in order to maximize your total wine exposure. Here are a few highlights (and helpful hints) to ensure you make the most of it without overwhelming yourself or missing out on must-attend tastings. LUMINARIES POSING AS SOMMELIERS – THE FRIDAY NIGHT HUSSLE These distinguished luminaries may not be working floor Sommeliers in the real world, but they get to play the role during Wine Fest weekend on Nantucket!

There happen to be two honorees...Read More >

Sipping & Sailing

BASICS OF THE DRINK: SIP + SAIL TERMS TO LIVE BY While there is a comprehensive (and somewhat exhausting) list of technical tasting terms that can be used to describe wines, this can be overwhelming to a beginner who just wants to enjoy the social aspects of sipping wine and rubbing elbows on the mega yacht down on the waterfront If you are just learning how to properly taste wine and describe what you are tasting with others, this quick reference guide of beginner wine terms will provide a helpful overview of words that make it simple to be on the same language (even if you have had a few sips already). In honor of the Nantucket sailing season beginning this last weekend for Memorial Day, we thought it be fun to compare some basic sailing terms with your wine drinking vocabulary. To start, think of your palate (as in your appreciation for taste and flavor) as a sailing vessel...Read More >
